What is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is a wireless protocol utilizing short-rangecommunications technology facilitating data transmissions over short distances from fixed and/or mobile devices, creating wireless personal area networks (PANs).

The intent behind the development of Bluetooth was the creation of a single digital wireless protocol, capable of connecting multiple devices and overcoming issues arising from synchronization of these devices. Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, telephones, laptops, personal computers, printers, GPS receivers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) 2.4 GHz short-rangeradio frequency bandwidth.

Important information concerning the Whistler Bluetooth Headsets.

1). The paring between 2 headsets or headset and another device will be automatically interrupted if the reception distance is exceeded.

2). Please make sure that the paired devices will be in close proximity.

3). The Bluetooth function of other devices in the environment should be switched off so that they won’t interfere with the pairing process.

4). Please note that in some cases, the headsets cannot be paired with external devices because some manufacturers do not allow other Bluetooth devices than their own.
